“I spent my childhood and grew up in this workshop in the heart of Saint Remy, my birthplace. I was never told that I would follow my father. It even took me a long time to realize what was obvious.” Pierre Lilamand took over an aging and sleepy business, but the 21 year old young man saw how to wake it up, and his father was bold enough to trust him. Within five years, the Lilamand brand was born, heir of the Confiserie des Alpilles founded by Marius. Even if candied fruits remain the iconic product, under his wife Sophie's impulsion, Lilamand is now also well known for its syrups, jams and calissons. The couple even became farmers in 2016, planting 2000 almond trees in the Alpilles to produce the best calissons.
The candied fruits team
The Provence region offers locally an amazing choice of fruits, enabling us to select very rare varieties, some of which are part of our agricultural heritage. Expert hands then transform these fruits into shiny jewels, helping to preserve the production of these rare varieties, an integral part of our roots.
THE CALISSON TEAM
Rows upon rows of almond trees in our Alpilles orchard to supply a brand new workshop dedicated to calissons, where bustling expert confectioners help transform this new challenge into a success. Thanks to their commitment, we have been able to progress in this adventure.
